the E8 table made from lacquered solid redwood, is based on an observation of an impromptu composed piece of war time furniture that ended up as a dining table. the long and narrow format allows it to be used as an everyday work and kitchen table, where temporary items such as laptopsor paperwork can be easily sidestepped during meal times. with its overhangs it serves as a twelve person dining table.

buon appetito is a system to process and feed paper waste into a growing sculptural furnishing for people to sit, lean and relax. we ask the question, what if, instead of disguising our paper waste in neat bins, we actually experienced it as part of our every day scenery and environment?
